The aim of this paper is to call the attention of Iowa scientists to the fact that in the development of mathematical periodicals Iowa has played a significant part. From January, 1874 to November, 1883 The Analyst, a Journal of Pure and Applied Mathematics was published in Des Moines by Joel E. Hendricks, a self-taught mathematician. This journal, started thirteen years after the last issue of the Mathematical Monthly of Boston (1859-1861), had the distinction of surviving longer than any previously published journal of its kind in the United States.
